Hi, I am trying to have the current location directly into short free text question when using the google map (I have added also my API google map key).
However even when I have the "IP as default location" selected it still won't show it to me.
Is there another way I can do this?

Thanks a lot this is doing indeed the trick, unfortunately the current location is not very close (but same city). I will play around with this some more. I have found some geo jquery scripts that are very accurate maybe I can use that instead.
when I have a proper solutions I make sure to post this.
Thanks again!

I realize that the pin is dropped always exactly in the middle.
Could that be the case? Because on the map I do see my current location however the pin is not dropped there. Looks like it centered the map.

Best is to contact limeservice support team.

You are not on limeservice support, but on limesurvey support :)
